Description: They say a man's home is his castle, but that's not usually taken so literally. This particular castle, found in the Hamptons, comes equipped with all the modern conveniences and comforts.

The hundred-year-old dwelling of limestone and brick is a masterpiece of detail. Over-sized windows are separated into individual panes by hand-carved mullions and traceries. Gothic revival archways, beamed ceilings and cobblestone floors add to the atmosphere. And don't miss the narrow winding stairway to the master suite with its antique bathtub.

"You feel like you're living and breathing a different air," said Rosemary Renna, the agent for the house. "You're transformed back into time."

The half-acre grounds are landscaped in English garden style and feature an ornate gazebo/pool house that doubles as guest quarters.
